Christine Resler has recently been inducted to the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame.

Christine Resler, president and CEO of ASRC Energy Services and an affiliate with ACEP, has recently been inducted into the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame. AES is the largest energy solutions company in Alaska and a subsidiary of the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation.

Resler was nominated by Gwen Holdmann, senior researcher at ACEP and UAF associate vice chancellor for research, innovation and industry partnerships, who herself was among the initial class inducted to the Alaska Innovators Hall of Fame in 2015. They have worked together on a statewide initiative to explore opportunities for Alaska’s involvement in the growing carbon capture and storage market.
Holdmann called Resler an “esteemed visionary and trailblazer within the energy industry.”

“[Resler’s] focus on collaboration and continuous improvement has been the bedrock of AES's sustained growth in a competitive environment,” Holdmann stated.

“[Resler] has played a pivotal role in shaping Alaska's business and innovation landscape through her transformative leadership,” Holdmann said. “Her contributions are a narrative of resilience, innovation and commitment to making a positive impact on Alaska’s energy landscape.”

In addition to her role at AES, Resler teaches a special topics course as an adjunct faculty member at UAF. Holdmann says the course, the Art of Innovation, “not only benefits university-affiliated individuals but also serves as a catalyst for fostering innovation within Alaska’s private sector.”

Resler is among the three 2024 inductees, along with Billy Connor, director of the UAF Arctic Infrastructure Development Center and Tim Collett, a research scientist for the U.S. Geological Survey.
